The lawyer’s tariff is set by the Serbian Bar Association. The full legal name of the regulation is the TARIFF on remuneration and reimbursement of attorneys’ fees.
The lawyer’s tariff is the official price list of lawyers, which is a legal regulation, and in accordance with the Legal proffesion act.
What are the main types of lawyer's fees?
- Hourly fee – which is charged depending on the complexity of the legal issue and the required expertise of the lawyer.
- Flat fee – Lawyer makes a projection of what he thinks the representation will cost and asks to receive that amount in advance.
- Contingency fee – allows the lawyer to collect a percentage of the value he managed to return to the client. This type of fee is usually a matter of negotiation between the attorney and the client. In most cases – the fee is related to the probability of success in the dispute and the complexity of the court proceedings. In Serbia, this type of fee is rarely used.
- Fixed fee – charged separately for a specific service. When the lawyer and the client reach a fixed-fee agreement, regardless of the time the lawyer spends on the case, the client pays the same fee. This type of fee is usually the most favorable for clients and is most often used in Serbia.
